343 Industries has officially announced that the next installment of the Halo series entitled “Halo 5: Guardians” will hit the XBox one in Fall 2015. Wow am I excited! We all knew that this game was coming in the near future, but to have an official time frame feels so damn good.
Yeah yeah, I know what you’re thinking, “2015?! What the hell?!” but guess what? Live with it. I would much rather have the game come out later then expected and be pristine, than be rushed and not enjoyable. It looks and sounds like 343 has a plan. And for that, I am happy. I want a SOLID new Halo game. I want to compare it to Halo 3 and be able to soberly announce that Halo 5: Guardians is the greatest Halo game yet. Will that happen? Maybe… hopefully.
Bonnie Ross, general manager at 343, stated the next time we should get an update on her blog, “Many fans noted that I was very deliberate with my phrasing on stage at E3 last year. I spoke about a “journey,” rather than a destination – and that journey definitely begins in 2014 with a giant leap, rather than one small step. We’ll give you much more information about our plans for this year at the Xbox E3 2014 Media Briefing on June 9, and we’re confident that “Halo” fans will be pretty excited about the special plans we have in store.”
